Growing up in Dyersburg, Tennessee, Joey Price planned to be a baseball coach.
But after 18 months of coaching the high school team that he had played for, Price decided to become a lawyer instead.
It was the right call. Price graduated from the Bowen School of Law in Little Rock in 2007 and joined Quattlebaum Grooms & Tull. This year, he was named managing member of the firm, where he represents clients in disputes ranging from breach of contract to negligence. In 2013, he spearheaded legislation that changed Arkansas law related to attorneys’ fees in eminent domain procedures, making it easier for landowners to challenge the value of their property.
Price serves on the board of We Are the 22 of Little Rock, a nonprofit that works to reduce the number of veteran suicides. He also is on the board of Metropolitan Emergency Medical Services, which provides ambulance aid to central Arkansas.
“There’s so much bad out there,” he said. “If good people would do good work, we can overcome that.”
